  1. WOW mate that's awesome, i cancelled my R order in the end due to both total costs with lease payment plus fuel plus insurance, was gonna be +£600 a month on top of what i had been paying on my owned Audi A4 3.0. Went for the ID3 instead which ive has since 11th Feb. Defo not as much fun as a R would be but free Electric atm so cant complain. We defo the best decision financially. Paying £39.99 a month insurance on the ID3. Hope you enjoy ya R. TheWood
  2. I was one of the first adding my R lease order to this post. Later cancelled and went for an ID3 Style, had it now since 11th Feb. I have got Bridgestone's on the ID3. Full Height Tyres too, would prefer some low profiles. I keep track on this thread, its nice to see the pictures of those that are finally receiving their Golf R's. Some ways its a shame I'm not getting one but hey ho. Hope you all enjoy em.
  3. No mate not at all. I had been looking for a while at all cars. Fancied electric, can't stretch to a Tesla. Liked the R but as above ended up cancelling. Felt the ID3 was the best of the electric at the 400 mark with 12k miles. Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  4. Original Phone call was 12 - 16 Weeks leadtime but now I doubt that was based on anything but standard times. Once ordered and I got my leasing online account the estimation was 25th June, I ordered on 11th Jan. When I cancelled I was still on section 2 awaiting a build week. Hope this helps.
  5. Hey up people Well I've caved and cancelled my R Order (Lease) 2 Reasons: Time it will take to arrive & running costs over my current owned car (+£500-£600/m) So I've secured a lease on an in stock Volkswagen ID3 and gone green lol - prefer a Tesla but out of reach im afraid. Anyhow I'm going to keep an eye on this thread and ill watch you all post your new R's. Please remove my R from the 'list' Enjoy your day.
  6. Way i see it is the lease is same as the PCP part of the purchase (Monthly Payment), then then the balloon payment is 'buying' the car. Most of time there is not much value over and above the balloon payment. So if you pay the balloon you have literally just paid for the car at todays value and you have still 'wasted' the prior monthly same as a lease. Im about to start my first ever lease so im no advocate but this is how i see it.
  7. Ive had confirmation through the rep that i defo do not yet have a build date. They showing ID3's in stock, hmmm.
  8. Im actually considering cancelling in the 14 day cooling off period of my lease and either picking an all electric or petrol plugin. Either that or moving forward with a large turbo for my A4 3.0 and it will have more BHP than the R lol Choices. I have asked my rep to ask the dealer if i have a build week as i dont currently on the tracker but reading on here i dont have much faith in it. TheWood
  9. Really!! Wow thats pretty bad..... This is my first VW order so i was thinking the VW site would be defacto standard to rely on.
  10. Id give it a while yet mate until you actually get some bad news, you never know you may be pleasantly surprised

  12. Im with you @Booth11 - Looking forward to my build week but also need to sell my current car which I'm using that value for my first £2.3k payment.
  13. Dunno mate. Makes sense to me tho that they wouldn't move during that period. If mine moves after this Thursday may tell a story bit could just be coincidence. All I know is I'm looking forward to getting my build week. Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  14. Rep said 14 - 16 weeks. I placed my order and when my acct was set up on their system and I could log on the estimate delivery is 25th June. As above I have today sorted out my order num for VWG site so I'll use that from now on as I see it as more reliable info. Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
